You have 2 choices: - revert to known working xorg-server-1.4 (xorg 7.3) - try to debug this using the send-pr system, given the ammount of problems people are posting with this xorg-server, more datapoints are not a bad thing. As a sidenote, it would be nice if xorg-server14 port would be created till the dust has settled. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
